The trend seems to be that most new receivers have none or only a single S-Video port. I have many classic game consoles that only support S-Video as their highest form of output. For my den I picked up an Yamaha RX-V3900 two years back that works great with tons of S-Video ports that it passes to my TV through HDMI.


Any newer (even low end) receivers that still have a few of these ports? I want to get one for my upstairs.

Thanks,

Usually, the extra connections are only on high-end models.  Here is one to consider for $700:

 

Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A1020 7.2-channel home theater receiver with Apple AirPlay® at Crutchfield.com

 

Here is one to consider at $1500:

 

Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3020 9.2-channel home theater receiver with Apple AirPlay® at Crutchfield.com

 

These are both discounted because they are discontinued models (they were the latest models a year ago).

 

Low-end models are usually the first to have "extra" legacy connections eliminated, so among current models, it will tend to be expensive to get the connections you want.

The Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A1020 is nice but a lot of $$ just for the spare TV room. I figured there would not be many options, thanks guys! Hopefully my RX-V3900 does me good for a while in the primary room.

As I stated previously, extra legacy connections are pretty much on high end models only these days.  The only way to go inexpensive is used for such things.

The 2013 Denon E200 and E300 both have (2) S-video inputs and (1) S-video output, however, neither can convert to HDMI, rather the E400 which has (1) S-video input and (0) S-video outputs would be the lowest model that can convert to HDMI.

I'm pretty sure they don't have any S-Video jacks. Maybe you're confusing them with the composite and/or component inputs these receivers do have.


The only current AV receivers that I know of that still have S-Video jacks are the high end Yamaha receivers that Jack D Ripper mentioned. All other manufacturers dropped them completely from all their models a couple of years ago (or more).

I just looked at the Denon site.  Neither have any S-Video connections at all.  It would appear that jdsmoothie confused composite video with S-Video.

 

See:

If other companies have dropped this sort of connection, this is yet another reason to pick Yamaha instead of the competition.
